London quintet SULK have been around for a few years now, putting out some well-received singles but perhaps not making as big an impression have been expected.
With comparisons to the likes of The Stone Roses in their baggy indie sound beats and trippy lyrics, and uplifting harmonies they now return with an imminent new full-length, the follow-up to their 2013' debut 'Graceless'.
Retiring to Big Jelly Studios, a converted church in Ramsgate on the Kent coast, they began the task of producing the "difficult" second album. Working with producer/mixer Jonas Verwijnen, over twenty demos that encompassed classic indie, pop, shoegaze and psychedelic vibes with added sitars and Love-esque vocal harmonies, gradually evolved into a complete album: 'No Illusions'.
First taste is found in new single, 'The Tape Of You'. A big, melodic track that soars on synths and psych-gaze guitar riffs.
'No Illusions' is released on April 15 via Perfect Sound Forever. The band will play the album in full live at London's Moth Club on release night.
